Prologue
Bishop Woolsey reported that the Diocese of Athabasca had recently had a Conference on the laying-on-of-hands and anointing with oil.
There is no statement from the House of Bishops regarding the anointing of the sick with oil by lay people. The House was reminded that, in his paper, Bishop Henry Hill stated that any Bishop can authorize anyone to anoint, but it is usually assigned to clergy only. There are no diocesan policies, but some Bishops have given special permission.
Text
That the House of Bishops affirm the rubric on page 555 of the Book of Alternative Services as constituting the general guidelines for unction.
The rubric reads: "The oil for the anointing of the sick is to be used only by clergy and those lay persons who have received authorization by the diocesan bishop." [CARRIED #2-11-86]

Notes
"'Anglican healing has nothing to do with placing the emphasis on a cure', explains Shelley Tidy, pastoral care associate at St. Paul's Bloor Street in Toronto, who for the past six years has chaired the Bishop's Committee on Healing in the diocese of Toronto. 'Everything is done in the name of lightening a person's burden by placing it at the foot of the cross', she says". "Anglican healing sacraments include the laying on of hands and anointing with oil, both accompanied by prayer. While performing the laying of hands is restricted to ordained clergy, anointing may be performed by licensed laity under the supervision of a priest". "Every year, Tidy runs a popular fall weekend program at the Convent of the Sisters of Saint John the Divine in Toronto to train lay anointers through lectures, practical training, group discussion and prayer".

Notes
Brenda Garvey is an honorary lay pastoral assistant at St. Cuthbert's, Oakville, Ontario. She is also multifaith chaplain at Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga, and a licensed lay anointer. "In 2006, Trillium hired Garvey to assist patients with cancer and other terminal illnesses and their families. 'Death is as much a sacred miracle as birth', says Garvey, who notes that when she anoints Anglicans with the same oil with which they've been baptized, 'they feel they have come full circle and been touched by God again'. As Garvey sees it, her job is to help people of different faith, or of no faith, have 'a good death experience'. By offering comfort and meaning, Garvey helps them 'to be present in each precious last moment'."

Notes
The author, an Anglican parish priest and member of the Order of St. Luke, an organization which promotes the Church's ministry of healing, describes the weekly healing services he conducts, usually in the context of the Eucharist. "One major change I have been considering of late is to move the laying-on-of hands from after the communion to right after the Confession and Absolution and before the Eucharistic Prayer. I have always been troubled by the redundancy of administering the laying-on-of hands for healing immediately after the Sacrament of Communion which is also for healing ("... preserve they body and soul unto everlasting life", B.C.P., p. 84)." "One last thought: I do not normally anoint with oil during the service so as not to depreciate the Sacrament of Anointing by being too free with it. If a person asks for it ahead of time and comes prepared for it, and even if I receive a special request at the rail, I am happy to comply. I suspect there are those who
